CLEVELAND -- Josh Gordon smiled as he walked off the field on an insufferably muggy day. Nothing, it seemed, was bothering him. He peeled off his jersey, sweat streaking his face. The star receiver soon posted a photo on Instagram of him catching a pass from rookie Johnny Manziel. "Only place I can find peace," Gordon captioned the picture. The football field is giving Gordon serenity. His time there be could be running out. Gordon is still awaiting word from the NFL on whether hell be suspended for all or part of the upcoming season. Gordon, who led the league with 1,646 yards receiving last season, recently had his appeal hearing to fight a possible yearlong suspension for again violating the leagues substance-abuse program. Hes been practicing and playing for weeks amid uncertainty about his career. The 23-year-old player has seemingly been in a fog, dropping passes during practices and preseason games. He hasnt spoken to reporters for months. "Its definitely weighing on him," Browns coach Mike Pettine said. "He, like all of us, wants to know and wants to get on with it and move forward. Just kind of being in limbo for so long, it can be draining. He made the comment the other day that the football field is where he feels most at home." Gordon shattered the clubs single-season franchise record with 1,646 yards receiving last year despite being suspended for the first two games. In just his second season as a pro, Gordon emerged as one of the games top playmakers, capable of turning a 12-yard inside route into a breathtaking 95-yard touchdown. He was on the verge of superstardom, but may have stumbled. Gordon allegedly tested positive for marijuana during the off-season, violating the conditions required as a repeat offender under the leagues system. Last month, Gordon hired lawyer Maurice Suh to represent him at his appeal hearing before arbitrator Harold Henderson in New York. Suh argued Gordons positive test was the result of secondhand smoke, a person familiar with the defence told The Associated Press on July 29. Gordons troubles werent limited to his battle with the league. He was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated on July 5 in Raleigh, North Carolina. In May, he was ticketed for speeding in Ohio and a passenger in his car was cited for marijuana possession. Those issues compounded his problems and may influence whatever punishment Commissioner Roger Goodell hands down. Gordon played poorly in Monday nights exhibition loss at Washington, and Pettine met with Gordon to discuss his overall lack of effort. "Hes responded and has had some good practices for us," Pettine said. "I just think, like all of us, its only natural that hes frustrated." Like Gordon, the Browns have been anxious for a verdict. Losing the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder for any time cripple Clevelands offence, depriving it of its top playmaker and quarterback Brian Hoyers primary target. The Browns receiving corps has had an underwhelming training camp and preseason, to say the least. Theres no one of Gordons calibre. Without him, yards, points and wins could be scarce. Pettine is counting on Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins, Travis Benjamin, Nate Burleson and others to step up in Saturdays home game against St. Louis, Hoyers first since he was picked over Manziel to start the opener. "Its a big night for them," Pettine said. "Well see who can step up and make some plays. The NFL is all about being productive and making plays. The third game is as close to the regular season as youre going to see." Gordon hasnt given up hope on being able to help the Browns this season or next. During a recent practice he told Burleson he intends to get in the best shape of his life. "Hes doing push-ups in the middle of a drill and I said, Whatcha doing?" Burleson said. "He said, Man, I want to lose some weight. I want to get down to where I was a couple years ago. Hes faster than everybody right now. So imagine whats going to happen when he tightens up even more. I like where hes at. I like where his head is at, too." And, as the Browns see it, the longer Gordons on the field, the better. Kenyan Drake Jersey . Nine-year veteran Danny Granger did not make his debut with the Clippers because of a technicality on the teams active list, which is signed by coach Doc Rivers before every game and relayed to the officials.

The award, based on a vote of 31 major league executives, was announced Monday night at the annual GM meetings. Voting ended before the post-season, when the Red Sox went on to win their third World Series title in 10 years and first since Cherington succeeded Theo Epstein as general manager in October 2011. Cherington received 15 votes, followed by Pittsburghs Neal Huntington (nine), Kansas Citys Dayton Moore (four) and Atlantas Frank Wren (three). Boston won the award for the fourth time, following owner Tom Yawkey (1946) and GM Dick OConnell (1967 and 75). Founded in 1886, TSN ended its print edition at the end of last year but remains available online. "Definitely unexpected," Cherington said. "I consider this to be an award for the organization, not for me. Coming off the year we had in 2012, I also sort of see it as usually an award that goes to an organization that does work over a period of time and not necessarily in one year." Following a late collapse in 2011, Boston was decimated by injuries last year and went 69-93 under first-year manager Bobby Valentine, its poorest record since 1965. A roster turnover began in August 2012 when AAdrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and their big-money contracts were traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a deal that saved Boston just more than $261.dddddddddddd.66 million through 2018. Valentine was fired after the season and replaced by former Toronto manager John Farrell, Bostons pitching coach from 2007-10. The Red Sox restocked during the off-season by signing seven major league free agents for contracts of three years or fewer at a total of $100.45 million, a group that included Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino, Jonny Gomes, Koji Uehara, Stephen Drew, David Ross and Ryan Dempster. They helped Boston win the AL East, return to the playoffs for the first time since 2009 and help the city heal following the Boston Marathon bombings in April. Drew, Napoli and Jacoby Ellsbury turned down Bostons $14.1 million qualifying offers Monday, and the Red Sox would receive additional draft picks at the end of the first round in June if they sign elsewhere. Cherington said the Red Sox continue to talk with the three along with free-agent catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. "Theres real interest, but nothing more than that," Cherington said. For Cherington and his staff, the 2013 title is an accomplishment to savour, but its also in the past already.
